ARSENAL goalkeeper Bernd Leno has taken a swipe at Spurs and Chelsea by claiming the Gunners are the biggest club in London.
Leno has proved to be a hit with the fans after joining from Bayer Leverkusen last summer.
Asked by Sport Bild to compare Arsenal and Leverkusen, he said: “You can’t compare that, of course Arsenal is a world club, THE club here in London.
“Not Chelsea, not Tottenham – Arsenal is the club here with fans around the world.
“No matter where we are, also in the USA or in Asia, there are many fans of Arsenal everywhere.”
FORMER Tottenham midfielder Kevin Prince-Boateng has revealed he once bought three cars in one day while at Spurs.
Speaking of his early playing days in England, he told La Repubblica: “I'll go back and say: I didn't treat football as a job,' he told La Repubblica.
“I was an idiot. I had talent, but I trained the bare minimum, an hour on the field. I was the last to arrive and the first to leave. I'd be out with friends.
“I had money, I lived like a king. I'd never been to the gym. That changes your later career.
“I bought three cars in one day when I was at Tottenham: a Lamborghini, a Hummer and a Cadillac. To the youngsters, I tell them: 'You cannot buy happiness.'
“I didn't play, I had family problems, I was out of the squad. I was looking for happiness in material things: a car makes you happy for a week. I bought three to be happy for three weeks.”
